    Passing through Tampa en route to Sanibel in late April.

    Want the wife to dump me off at Cigar City for an hour or two in the early evening. Wondering if anyone had suggestions for how she could kill some time with a 2.5 year old and baby while daddy ties one on? A park or place to run around would be great (not too far away).

    Thanks in advance!

    Al Lopez Park, huge park where there is playgrounds and different walking and running courses. its about 5-10 min away from the brewery, directly next to raymond james stadium.

    Yup, Al Lopez has to be the closest park and they have a few big playground areas and plenty of room to run around in.

    Lowry Park Zoo is not too far away either.

    There is a climbing gym called vertical ventures about 10 minutes from the brewery. Great way to tucker out the kids

    You could get extra points for suggesting her hit up International Mall down the street to kill some time. My wife usually responds well to this and if I remember correctly, they have a large kids play area.
